Planned Parenthood, worse than Penn State

We take sexual abuse of children quite seriously in the United States, but only selectively.
When Americans learned that Penn State employees didn’t make use of evidence that assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky was having sex with children, we were collectively outraged. After Sandusky’s conviction on 45 counts of sexual abuse, the culture rightly wanted heads to roll. We demanded to know who knew what, when they knew it and why those people had not moved heaven and earth to stop the abuse.
Former FBI director Louis Freeh found that late head coach Joe Paterno and other university leaders “repeatedly concealed critical facts” about suspicions pertaining to Sandusky. Paterno’s statue was removed from campus. Ranking university officials, including the president, were fired. The NCAA fined Penn State $60 million and neutered the football program with a four-year postseason ban. Public outcry is so enormous that some say the very existence of Penn State is in question, as the Middle States Commission on Higher Education has threatened to pull the school's accreditation.
When society learned that several Catholic bishops had covered up for child molesters, mostly decades prior, the church was sued out of more than $3 billion. The costs keep rising, with some suits that involve cases so old the alleged victims and defendants are dead.
Most would agree that all of this is good. No civilized society tolerates cover-ups of sexual abuse of children.
Yet our federal government pays more than $1 million a day to Planned Parenthood, which probably covers up more sexual abuse of children than any other institution in the United States. Evidence is overwhelming.

American RTL Launches RepublicansAgainstRomney.com

ARTL: Obama is the Lesser of Two Evils
DENVERAug. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "Mitt Romney is the architect of Obamacare," said Jefferson George, the president of American Right To Life Action, a conservative 527 group. "Romney has already implemented what Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton only dream of: homosexual marriage, tax-funded abortion on demand by health care reform with the individual mandate, robbing religious freedom from pro-life hospitals. The list is long. If anyone believed the 'lesser of two evils' con, they'd have to vote for Obama."

"Strategists say that independents decide elections," said Darrell Birkey, the ARTL research director overseeing the new RepublicansAgainstRomney.com site. "So the only way for pro-lifers to get candidates who won't kill unborn children is to become independent enough to oppose liberal, pro-abortion, pro-homosexual, politicians like Mitt Romney."
Agreeing with ARTL is the longtime vice president of the nation's first "right to life" group. "The Republicans Against Romney site documents that the excuses the campaign makes for Mitt's anti-child, anti-free-market, anti-family actions are nothing but lies," said Colorado Right To Life's Leslie Hanks. "Sadly, conservative talk show hosts lap it up and repeat the lies. This website even offers a $100 reward for corrections to errors of fact."
